Just something I thought might be interesting to some of you.  Those familiar know how the boxes on the rear fenders of the JB line have multi functions.  The right serves as the battery box, plus throttle, lift, and hydro hand controls, plus has a headlight on the front.  The left box serves as a toolbox, plus swings out to the side for easier getting to the seat, and has a headlight on the front.  Both boxes have a tail light on the rear.

  The neat thing is that the left headlight has a spot of clear in the reflective coating so it can light up the interior of the toolbox when the lights are on.  I've never seen this on any other GT period.  They are GE headlights, but no numbers at all that I can find.  Anyone ever seen such a headlight bulb?  This is my customized JBI, but the boxes are OE.

All there is is the number "94"  That's it besides "made in usa".  This bulb looks like the filament is intact, but it doesn't work.  The spade attachments fell off, but it still won't work when I connect power.  The original JBI still has a working bulb on that side, so at the moment I don't need a new one, but just wondering if anyone ever seen a sealed bulb like it.  Likely not available these days.

That's a cool bulb. Been looking for any hens teeth lately? Might be easier to find!

Here's a place that might be worth looking at for a replacement.

Daniel, you could always wire up a small lamp or LED to light the tool box. Then you'd only be looking for a light of the same size. That bulb was no doubt a special order item from GE. Do you think your contacts at BH would be able to help?

On the OLD harley davidson golf car 3 wheelers, the front light was a GE that looks just like that model. Maybe that would help?

Pure curiosity here  , Dan  . Was JB 1  and II  a short version of Jabalina  or did it come from some other derivation ? These machines are intriguing.

Daniel, Have you looked at the other bulbs you have for any other number?

Not yet, but I will check for headlight numbers on my JBI "original".

These were abbreviations for the Jabalina, which is pronounced "hav-a-leena"
